Bobby Lashley: I Don't Think WWE Have Any Serious Competition
AEW is established as the secondary promotion
Bobby Lashley believes the current wrestling landscape is a very healthy place but does not feel WWE currently have 'any serious competition'.
While All Elite Wrestling has firmly established themselves as the number two promotion in terms of audience viewership and pay-per-view buy rates, Lashley does not feel any company can hold a candle to WWE.
The All Mighty recognises that fans are liking other products now, though, which in turn forces WWE talent to step up.
Speaking to Steven Muehlhausen of DAZN, when asked about the current landscape of wrestling, Lashley said: "I think it's great right now. I think there's a lot of competition. I think we're doing some big things, and we're moving into a big season for us, with some big news coming around. I think that it's a good time to be a wrestling fan, and it's a good time for a wrestler with a good time to step up for everyone.
"Everybody always says competition is good. I don't think really we have any serious competition. But the fans like it, the fans like the fact that there are other things going on that forces us to step up.
"I think myself and a lot of the other guys wish some of the other competition does step up because we're ready. If you look at our roster, our roster is deep. We have something different. We have something special. There's a couple of things with it. There's one to have great wrestlers, and there's another thing to have superstars. We’re chalk-loaded with both.
"We have guys that are just pure superstars, and you can take outside of our wrestling world will do other things, and they're going to be superstars. And we have some guys that are in the dressing room that are just great wrestlers. We have a little bit of everything. I think everyone here is like, if we need to step up, we have all the talent to be able to do it."
